It would be better to change taps in bathrooms with laser ones. It is very bad for our health because of bacteria accumulated on push buttons. Also elevator needs to be replaced.


They offer nice activities, where easily meet other hostellers and which are fun. The price for the hostel is pretty much ok, although the building and the facilities are bit older. Since the hostel is directly at a rather busy street during the night it can be a bit loud. Breakfast is good. 24h reception


I stayed at 4 different HI Hostels in the US and this was by far the worst one. Mattresses are too thin so you have a bar sticking in your back, turbulent air conditioning, on off on off, hot cold hot cold, hard to sleep. Staff might recommend you to go to Bolt burgers down the road, DO NOT GO TO BOLT BURGERS. Only one elevator and it is the worlds slowest. To their credit they did organise decent events and tours and the staff were quite friendly.


Had a great stay! Staff were nice and helpful, rooms were clean and it was easy to find even though it was a ten minute straight walk from Metro Station. But overall, great stay! Definitely will be back if I go to DC.
